Scots Whay Hae! Presents The Scottish Publisher Showcase Podcast...


The latest Scots Whay Hae! podcast is a rather special one. It's a collaboration with the Edinburgh International Book Festival and Publishing Scotland as part of the Scottish Publisher Showcase at this year's Festival.


There are interviews with eight representatives from a variety of publishers who tell us all about who they are, what they do, the challenges they face, and the books they are excited about. As well as those core conversations we talk to Nick Barley, the Director of the Edinburgh Book Festival, and Vikki Reilly from Publishing Scotland.


The interviewees (pictured above) include:

Chani McBain (Floris Books) - Nicola Ramsey (Edinburgh University Press) - Emily Dewhurst (Kitchen Press) - Francesca Barbini (Luna Press) - Joe Sanders (The Gaelic Books Council) - Jean Findlay (Scotland Street Press) - Peter Burns (Polaris Publishing) - Clare Cain (Fledgling Press)

Put together it makes for a fascinating insight into, and overview of, publishing in Scotland today, and we hope you'll be encouraged to investigate further, which you can do by visiting edbookfest.co.uk & publishingscotland.org.
